My first encounter with these picks were at a live concert. The guitarist of the band threw his pick to the crowd and I happened to catch it.It's been 2 years and I've yet to switch to a different pick style. Normal picks I was okay with, but I always thought they were too big, especially for speed and precision (just my opinion), so I changed to Jazz III and guess what, they were too small. If you feel the same you should definately try these picks out. If not , why not go for it anyway? They are not that big of an investment after all!
